CO announced that right now, all state parks are open BUT all state campgrounds, playgrounds, picnic areas, dispersed camping, and all camping facilities at state parks and state wildlife areas are closed until further notice --refunds are available

Yuma county delayed its Turkey opening until May 2nd ( delayed 3 weeks)

I expect to see more of this everywhere--people didnt think it would affect hunting, but if you cant camp or travel then its going to start affecting it for sure. I expect boating to be restricted on reservoirs too, just hasnt happened yet.

Another issue with other states is they are issuing "stay inside/quarantine" orders for anyone traveling into their areas-- SO that means technically if you are traveling to one of those states, you have to go on your hunt 2 weeks early and stay inside before your hunt date --I can see these states doing a temporary ban on out of state hunters as most wont comply with the rules, some already have

As far as I know, right now you can still camp on federal land/national forest land/BLM land --it is just state land that no longer allows it

It is the traveling that gets you to your destination that is troubling. If you are a carrier and don't know it, why take it through several states to get where you want to go. You just passed it on to people that never had it. In two to three more months things will hopefully be better. We just got our first case in our county yesterday. No known answer how that person picked it up. In the middle of fly over country so maybe that shelter in place is working in podunk Illinois.

China just lifted its 11 week stay at home order-- in 2 to 3 weeks we will see if that's a smart idea or not--- hopefully we can learn from others mistakes and not make worse ones.

It sad sometimes how much fun we missed during this pandemic. This year I wanted to start my east coast road trip. I wanted to spend a week or two exploring exciting east coast destinations. I was planning this active outdoor vacation several month and I was upset when I had to cancel everything. I want to think that I didn't cancel my trip but postponed it. I have already bought many different equipment, including tents, sleeping bags, pillows, many personal stuff, stove, frige, super bright camping lanterns, a lot of food. And I hope I will have the possibility to use all these stuff soon.
